There’s lots of competition here in greater Pittsburgh, whether you’re making comfort food or fine dining. Attracting and keeping customers is paramount.

Choosing how to power your restaurant’s kitchen so that you can make the most of your business can seem like a challenge. But when you look at how propane works for your business, it’s challenge over!

We have five reasons why you should look to propane from ProGas to fuel your restaurant.

A better product

You’ve invested a lot in your restaurant kitchen: skilled chefs, good equipment and quality ingredients. Propane lets you make the most of all of that. The food your restaurant serves will be enhanced by your chefs being able to use precise and instant temperature control.


Propane isn’t just for your restaurant’s cooktop. Several kinds of commercial kitchen equipment can be run on propane or be converted to run on propane. With propane, you get the BTU your salamander broiler needs to cook those beautiful steaks and chops and perfectly melt a cheese topping. Pizza ovens, steam tables, buffets, deep fryers and other appliances can run on propane.


Propane is one of the most highly regulated energy sources around, and has a safety record to go with it. The propane industry also has incredibly stringent standards when it comes to propane tanks, installation, maintenance and inspection.

Outdoor options

If you have some space outside you’ve been looking at for outdoor dining, or you want to have outdoor dining more often, propane can do that! Propane-powered patio and deck heaters, fire pits and hearth provide comfort and warmth. Propane can also run outdoor lighting with a warm glow.


Restaurants like yours need to be open when they’re supposed to be open. With propane, not even a power outage can keep your doors closed. A propane standby generator will not only keep the lights on, but run the refrigeration to keep all of your food cold or frozen.

Green Fuel

Propane is one of the cleanest-burning fossil fuels and is not classified as a greenhouse gas. In fact, it is named as an alternative fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the National Energy Policy of 1992. If you’re a chef whose recipes and menus are organically-based, you’ll be using a fuel that you know is responsible for our planet as well – something that can’t be said by using natural gas.
